About the author
LOLA’s is a business with a simple aim: to handcraft the most delicious cupcakes you have ever tasted, using only the finest fresh ingredients. LOLA’s is run with passion and creativity by Asher Budwig, a fourth-generation baker who grew up watching his father Mario establish and run the enormously successful chain Millie’s Cookies, which grew to over 100 stores in the UK. Asher’s grandmother and great grandmother had also run a patisserie and café since the 1940s in Colombia, so with such a talented family of bakers, it was almost inevitable that he would bring success to LOLA’s. LOLA’s is rapidly expanding, and Asher’s passion for high standards and quality ingredients is reflected in the latest developments. In every new branch of LOLA’s, quality remains key. The specialist bakers are highly trained and passionate about all things LOLA. Each individual cupcake is created with love and skill, so that every cupcake is sure to impress.
